  • Sew the three windows onto the boat.
  • Position Boat into place and sew onto page – DO NOT SEW TOP PART!!
  • Insert the bottom part of flagpole into the boat about 2 cm – sew only one side of pole onto page – it should be able to move side to side.

    (this will cause the pole not to move anymore) Flag should be able to flap up and down 🙂

  • Sew flag onto pole – use photo as guide.
